BOAMBEE managed to keep its unbeaten record on home soil intact with an impressive 3-1 victory over likely finalist Orara Valley.

The Bombers welcomed back Wade Parker from his overseas adventures and his presence had a positive effect on teammates early as evidenced by Boambee scoring the opening goal not long after the opening whistle.

Orara defenders were left scratching their collective heads after a well worked cross from Matt Hughes found Grant Scully who slammed the ball into the back of the net.

That piece of play ended up being one of the few genuine scoring opportunities in the first half but the contest played in front of a healthy crowd was an entertaining one, nonetheless due to it being of a tough and uncompromising nature with both teams starting at breakneck pace before getting into a groove with both teams battling it out in the halves.

The Bombers started to go up a gear after the break and more chances were being created particularly on the right side where Hughes was a constant danger with his deft touch.

Orara also started to find its feet with many well worked moves coming to a halt at the feet of Boambee's defensive generals Trent Backhouse and Cameron Want.

In the 65th minute Brad Boyle was again in the right place to slip the ball past the Orara keeper to double the home team's lead and bring his personal tally for the past three weeks to five goals.

The Dingoes responded quickly on the scoreboard to make for an interesting final quarter of an hour.

Boambee again stepped up a gear and with the strike pairing of Parker and Boyle running freely it wasn't long before Parker slotted home a well taken opportunity to seal victory.
